Veterans recognition event cancelled

-A A +A

To the editor:

It was with some concern that I learned last week that my cancellation notice for the 2013 Annual Veterans Recognition Event had not been printed by The Oldham Era this past week or the week before.

For several reasons, it was necessary for me to cancel this year’s event, and the newspaper had promised to publish the notice to that effect. It was my goal to inform readers that, after seven years of hosting this event on the second Thursday in August, I am unable this year to hold it.

My personal thanks go to all of you who attended the earlier events. I encourage our veterans, their families and all supporters of our military to attend the countywide Veterans Day event on Nov. 11, 2013, at the John Black Community Center.
